Breast Cancer symptoms
Most individuals visit their doctor because they experience the following symptoms:
The appearance of a previously unnoticed lump or nodule in the breast.
The breast is tender upon palpation.
One breast changes its size.
It develops an irregular shape.
Changes to the breast’s skin such as ulcers, colour changes and developing what is called peau d’orange (skin that appears like orange peel).
Changes to the nipple, including inversion (facing inward).
Bloody secretions from the nipple.
The appearance of a lump under the arm.
Other symptoms include tiredness or localised bone pain, which both appear in more advanced stages of the disease.
If you notice any of these symptoms, you should visit your gynaecologist for an assessment and to begin a more detailed study if considered necessary.
